Growing Chinese presence in Doklam raises concerns
Rahul, other party leaders question reports in Parliamentary panel meet
tween Indian and Chinese troops in Doklam had begun mid- June over the Chinese Army constructing a road close to the tri-junction.
At the height of the controversy, the government had held two special briefings on the issue for Opposition members the same month during which both sides have batted for resolving the issue diplomatically.
The panel, which had earlier also discussed the issue on October 18, has now decided to call experts for a briefing on the issue of Sino- India relations in the next meeting.
Monday’s meeting was attended by only odd a dozen of the total 30 members in the panel, prompting a BJP MP to ask Tharoor questions about quorum for holding such a meeting.
In the panel’s last meeting as well, Gandhi had asked a number of questions to the government regarding the Doklam issue.
BJP had in past attacked Gandhi when he had met the Chinese Ambassador in Delhi in July during the peak of the Indo China row over Doklam. Gandhi had defended the move saying It was his job to be informed on critical issues.
